President Volodymyr Zelensky wants to create a human shield from EU missions at Ukrainian energy facilities claimed Dmitri Medvedev, the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council.


Dmitry Medvedev, the former Russian President and current Deputy Chairman of the Security Council, posted on his Telegram channel on Tuesday, December 13, commenting on Vladimir Zelensky’s recent request to send missions of the European Union to the critical infrastructure of Ukraine.

“The stubborn bloody clown is asking the EU to send missions to Ukrainian critical infrastructure facilities. Apparently, he wants the Europeans to sit there as human shields”, he wrote.
